DC Central Kitchen rendering
Nonprofit D.C. Central Kitchen will relocate its headquarters to the new mixed-used development RiverPoint, located at Buzzard Point. The development is built on the former U.S. Coast Guard headquarters and developed by Akridge, Western Develop Corp. and Orr Partners.

When Mike Curtin Jr. started working at D.C. Central Kitchen in 2004, there were two topics that came up time and time again: space, and the need for more of it.

At the time, the nonprofit culinary jobs academy already was squeezing 30 employees into the basement of a crumbling homeless shelter and operating on a $2.5 million annual budget. Today, the organization is busting out of three makeshift spaces operated by 170 employees, 14,000 volunteers and a $19 million budget, according to Curtin, who took over as CEO in 2007.
